Fake Shankaracharya of Puri Govardhan Peeth, Adhokshjanand Devtirath, whose claims were rejected by the Orissa High Court as well as the Odisha Government, invited Azam Khan as the Chief Guest to the foundation-laying ceremony of a cow-shelter at his Mathura ashram and gifted him a black cow.
Azam Khan revealed this while heaping praise on his friend, who was proved as a fraud as per the law. Azam reportedly wanted a black cow and Adhokshjanand Devtirath did not disappoint him. Azam has decided to give a shelter to the gifted cow.
Azam Khan refuses to believe that Adhokshjanand is a fake Shankaracharya and Swami Nischalananda Saraswati remains the real Shankaracharya of Govardhan Peeth, Puri.
